Dorothy was born April 23,1929 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The oldest of three children, she grew up on a farm several miles from the town of Mandan. Dorothy learned patience and forgiveness early in life. After attending Bismarck Junior college she met Melvin (Bing) Griffin.

Dorothy was a founding member of Gethsemane Lutheran Church (now Cana) and was known for her welcoming nature, calm disposition and easy smile. She was always willing to help anyone.
